There’s something about a stack of books that makes me completely giddy – doesn’t this look absolutely yummy?
Here are some ribbon-hinged albums in progress, as well as the finished product:
The one on the far right is an album I made yesterday afternoon, when I taught this project in a workshop for the first time. I had lots of fun, and can’t wait to teach it again on Saturday. This is probably my favourite new book structure, although it’s a bit expensive to make with all the cardstock and scrapbooking papers. I need to somehow adapt it so that it’s not quite so pricey.
Earlier today, I needed to stock up on various art supplies at a few different locations. Imagine how thrilled I was to discover these delicious papers at Loomis, and just in time for Spring!
I must now determine what projects could possibly be worthy of such beautiful papers. Oh, the possibilities…!
And finally, I’ve decided that on my next birthday (a mere 10 months away), I MUST MUST MUST throw myself a paper-crafting party, after reading this article in Mary Engelbreit’s Home Companion. How cool is this? There’s also a great article about the Paper Source, a chain of stores I’ve only visited in my dreams…
